Capuchin Crypt

I took a visit to the Capuchin Crypt in Rome last year - check out this guy

"Crypt of the Three Skeletons: The center skeleton is enclosed in an oval, the symbol of life coming to birth. In its right hand it holds a scythe, symbol of death which cuts down everyone, like grass in a field, while its left hand holds the scales, symbolizing the good and evil deeds weighed by God when he judges the human soul. A placard in five languages declares "What you are now we used to be, what we are now you will be." From Capuchin Crypt on WIKIPEDIA

I wonder who had the job of boiling the bones clean to make these arrangements...gotta love those catholics
